C-Class Supercharger question?

Hello All, please do not flame me for this, but its something I've been curious about for some time. Can the superchargers from the current or present C-Class mercedes benz (C230, C200, C180) be made to work on our cars. Has it ever been tried by anyone on this board. I ask because there are plenty of those floating around these days ,at very decent prices.


Thanks in advance

Wouldn't really be a good look for the M5, if I'm honest.

Benz uses Eaton style superchargers... Doubt the ports would like up, or be worth the time to try to make it work...
